Blunder by AG’s Union leader Pat Bain laid to rest

- office could see

child molester’ S
sentence cut

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

_ A CHILD molester convict-

ed of.having sexual intercourse _.
‘of immediate imprisonment

with an 11-year-old girl could

have his seven-year prison sen-
tence reduced because the |
Attorney General’s office failed -

to notify him of its appeal against
the lower court’s: three-year sus-
pended sentence.
The Privy Council in London
has ruled to set aside the extend-

. ed prison term for sexual offend- .

er Richard George Campbell,
and send the matter back to the

-~ Appeals Court to allow the
~ rehearing of the Attorney Gen-

eral’s appeal.

According to the ruling, on
December 1, 2004, Campbell
was convicted on one count of
sexual intercourse with a person
under the age of fourteen.

He was sentenced to a term



“There is... some
not very satisfactory
evidence about the
Court of Appeal’s
practice regarding
the notification

of Spee gnune |

criminal appea

Privy Council ruling

of three years imprisonment,

which was suspended for three
years, and ordered “to enter into

_’ arecognisance of $1,000 to keep

the peace and be of good behav-
iour for those three years.”

“The appellant’s offence
occurred in: November 1999
when (then in his late forties) he
licked the vagina of the eleven-
year-old daughter of the woman
he was then living with, causing
the girl to be ‘scared and uncom-
fortable’ and threatening that if
she reported the incident her
family would revert to the pover-
ty in which they had previously
lived.

“She (the victim) in fact
delayed the reporting until
December the following. year,”
the Privy Council summarised

‘. in its judgment.

Campbell was arrested in Jan-

uary 2001 and committed for tri-

al in April the same year.
Following his sentencing, the
Privy Council stated, Attorney
General Allyson Maynard-Gib-
son “at once applied for leave
to appeal against the sentence,

essentially on the ground that it ~

was unduly lenient.”
On March 14, 2004 the Court

et of Appeal first gave the Attor--

‘ney General leave to appeal and —

subsequently: allowed the appeal,
substituting for the three-year
suspended sentence imposed at
trial, a term of seven years

instead.

A warrant for Campbell’s a
‘arrest was also immediately |

issued.

However, Campbell ‘ ‘was nei-

ther present nor represented

before the Court of Appealand .°

it is that which gives rise to the
present appeal before this Board

(the Judicial Committee of the.

Privy Council).”
“The appellant contends that

he was never informed of the ©

date of the appeal hearing and
never consented to its being
heard in his absence,” the

Privy Council stated in its judg-

ment.

The Privy Council ruled that it
is “common ground” that no
attempts were made after the

initial service of the notice of the

Attorney General’s appeal appli-
cation on Campbell’s lawyer to
notify him of the date of the
hearing or to invite the lawyer’s

assistance in notifying the appel-_

lant.

“On February 25, 2005 ‘the
Court of Appeal’s bailiff sought
to serve the appellant personal-
ly at Fox Hill Prison with the
notice of hearing and the record

of the proceedings. Since, how-

vever, the appellant was not then
in custody, this attempt was obvi-
ously futile,” the Privy Council

said.

The Privy Council also criti-
cised the Bahamas’ ‘Court of
Appeal in its manner of notifying
défendants of their court dates.

“There is in addition some not

very satisfactory evidence about ~

the Court of Appeal’s practice

regarding the notification of |

forthcoming criminal appeals,”
the judges said.

The Privy Council ruled that’

the Court of Appeal had not
made the proper efforts to noti-
fy Campbell of the Attorney
General’s appeal against his
lenient sentencing.

“At the very least the Court of
Appeal would have had to satis-

. fy itself either that the appellant

must have known of the hearing
date and deliberately absented
himself or that he had deliber-
ately made it impossible to noti-
fy him in advance,” the Privy
Council said.

As a result the Privy Council
ruled to remit the case to the
Court of Appeal, set aside
Campbell’s sentence of seven
years’ imprisonment, and rehear
the Attorney General’s appeal.

The Privy Council advised that
these matters should all be dealt
with at a single hearing to be
convened as speedily as possi-

e.

Mitchell: Haiti still needs
the world’s assistance

HAITI continues to need
the world’s help, Foreign
Affairs Minister Fred Mitchell
told those gathered in Spain
for the International Confer-
ence for the Economic and
Social Development of Haiti.

He said all countries able to

assist should commit them- |

selves to Haiti and her people.
The minister said the
Bahamas is one of Haiti’s clos-
est neighbours and it was par-
ticularly important for the
country to be at the conference
to reaffirm support for the
democratic process in Haiti,
which can only be bolstered by
Haiti’s economic success.

Nay

The ministér said when one
visits Haiti, one cannot help
but be impressed by the indus-
try and aggression of its people
in the realm of buying and sell-’
ing.

“The city of Port-au-Prince
is awash with vendors plying
their wares. This spirit of
industry and hard work should |
be properly captured and
enhanced for the greater
national good. The donors who
are gathered here today to
reaffirm their commitment to
Haiti will help to do precisely -
that,” Mr Mitchell said.

home where she currently
resides, her lawyer, Wayne
Munroe, said yesterday.

Media reports had been cir-
culating that the reality TV star
was ordered to|vacate the

Supreme Court on Tuesday by
Emerick Knowles, lawyer for
Mr Ben Thompson, Ms Smith's

Smith missed a deadline to
respond to his suit declaring

Thompson the rightful owner
of the gated mansion.
According to Mr Knowles, he
had delivered a written request
to Smith that she obey the judg-

not being treated

@ By KRYSTEL ROLLE

MORE than 6,000 Bahami-
ans are living with the
HIV/AIDS virus yet only 2,000
of them are being treated,
Director of the National AIDS
programme Dr Perry Gomez
revealed yesterday.

“The urgent need for us now
is to get the other 4,000 to come
in and be evaluated to know
your status. As an HIV positive
person you must know your sta-
tus, meaning you must know
whether you need to be treated
or not,” he explained.

Even more worrying, he
added, is that the majority of per-
sons affected are young females
between the ages 15 and 30.

In an effort to create aware-
ness and to educate Bahamians,
more than 200 persons created a
human chain in the shape of the

. red ribbon, the symbol of

HIV/AIDS in Rawson’s Square
yesterday, World AIDS Day.

“Creating the red ribbon
reminds us that the fight still
goes on and there’s still a lot to
do and it’s also a symbol for-us
to reflect on those who have
died. Remembering what we
have gone through and what we
have yet to do,” Dr Gomez said:

Adding that they are focus-
ing on the youth, Dr Gomez
said they are working with the
Ministry of Education and
Youth and Sports bringing the
message of prevention.

“You can’t wait until the kids
are 15 to talk to them,” he said
because 10 year olds.are now
delivering babies.”

Ambassador John Rood, who
got tested yesterday at the



@ DR Barry Rassin from Doctors Hospital gets tested for AIDS
today to kick off world AIDS day

AIDS centre, agreed that it is
important that people know
their status.

“There are 40 million people

world wide that are infected.
Some 10 or 20 per cent know it
and that leaves 80 per cent or 32
million people that don’t know

’ their status and 32 million peo-

ple that are not taking advan-
tage of medication that may be

. available to them,” Ambassador

Rood said. "The bottom line is
that when you get tested you
know it's either going to be pos-
itive or negative, knowing your
status is key," she said. -
According to Ambassador
Rood, the US Embassy funds
$25 to $50 thousand per year as
well as several hundred thou-

. sand dollars in indirect funding

for facilities and labs in the
Bahamas. Camille Barnett,
President of the AIDS Foun-
dation, said that yesterday’s

event:in Rawson's Square was
simply an awareness event to
remind people.about HIV and
AIDS. According to Mrs Bar-
nett most of the proceeds from
the numerous fundraisers go to
some of the major projects.
“One of our major projects
right now is a group home. for
boys," Mrs Barnett said. These
are boys who are HIV positive.
They were living in the Princess
Margaret Hospital and we felt

. that that was not an appropriate

place for them to be living," she
said. She also pointed out that
people should get tested.
"You need to know the
information. HIV is not a death
sentence any more because the

‘medication is there," she said.

During December, World
Health Month, the Ministry of
Health in conjunction with the
Bahamas National HIV/AIDS
Centre will host several events.

THE TRIBUNE





Tn brief

MP voices
concern over
NIB managing
contributions

MP Whitney Bastian has
expressed concern about the
‘plan to have NHI contributions
collected by the National Insur-
ance Board.

“Here we have an organisa-
tion that already has problems in
accounting for the allocation of
funds over the past four years
and we are now considering .con-
tributing more funds to that
problem,” he pointed out.

‘Mr Bastian suggested that

rather than completely changing
the make-up of the health care
system, the government should
rethink the bureaucracy sur-
rounding the services current-
ly offered, embrace the power
of private insurance bodies and
harness the possibilities they
offer in subsidising costly tech-
nologies.

“For all these reasons and so
many more, I have no other
alternative but to reject this bill
in its current form and urge all
parliamentarians in this House
to do the same,” Mr Bastian
said in the House of Assembly
on Wednesday..

The debate on National .

Health Insurance will continue
in the House when it meets on
Wednesday, December 6.

SOUTH ANDROS MP
Witney Bastian described
national health insurance as a
“cunning ploy” by the PLP
administration to attract more
votes for the upcoming elec-
tion. 407. |

During Mr Bastian’s speech
to parliament on the proposed

: « NHI scheme, he criticised the

government for a lack of con-
sultation and claimed that peo-
ple in Andros “have heard
nothing of this bill.”

Mr Bastian said he believes
it to be the right of all human
beings to have equal and time-

less of their ability to pay for
services, but he questioned

NHI a ‘cunning ploy to win votes’

Independent MP condemns government’s bill



system work to provide the
funding for a better, fairer sys-
tem into the future?”
According to the MP, the
Bahamas already has a system

that offers health care to every -

person regardless of their abil-
ity to pay.

“Does this system not allow
any one of our Bahamian citi-
zens to have their children
immunised, receive emergency
medical attention in times of
urgent need and receive nec-
essary medication in times of
illness? ;

“Why then does this gov-
ernment come to this house

with a bill that they say is to
offer all of our citizens a health
care?” he asked.

Mr Bastian said the govern-
ment was insulting the intelli-
gence of the House of Assem-
bly by suggesting that NHI
would provide a new service.

“It is blatantly obvious that
this is a cunning ploy to attract
more votes this coming election
year,” he said. :

The independent MP said
that if the government nation-
alised the health system, it will
be unable to support itself
financially in the future.

“By nationalising the health

system I see us removing com-
petition from the marketplace
and therefore reducing quality
services tothe end user. —

“By nationalising the health
system I see us denying the very
real contribution that private
health insurance has made to
the quality of services in the
country thus far, possibly reduc-
ing the effectiveness of this sec-
tor-in the future, and by nation-
alising the health system I see us
limiting the choice of the com-
mon man and reducing his over-
all income and standard of liv-
ing, regardless of his health risk
overall,” he said.

NHI will overburden employers, says union leader

fi. By ALEXANDRIO MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter

NATIONAL Health insur-
ance will put too much of a bur-

den on employers, according -
to union leader Elgin Douglas..

During an interview with The
Tribune the president of the
Bahamas Commercial Stores

es Supermarkets and Warehouse

Worker’s Union claimed that
his members are ‘still unsure
about the impact the proposed
health plan will have on group

“insurance already provided by

their employers.
- “The companies that I rep-

resent have good group insur-"

ance, and I don’t see any rea-

. son why that should change,”

he said.

Mr Douglas said he found
it-_puzzling that the govern-
ment wants to “rush” through
an initiative that has such
wide-reaching effects.

“Employers will start saying
that too much of the burden is
being placed on them, because
they already provide their
workers good private group
insurance,” said Mr Douglas

The veteran union leader
said he hopes the governmen-
t’s NHI plan does not upset

the “good relationship” -
- between some trade unions

and employers.

Some members of the busi-
ness. community have
expressed similar sentiments

about the government’s plan
to intervene in agreements
between unions and employers
under the proposed bill. »

In particular, they are con-
cerned about Clause 14, which
says that despite any group
health insurance agreement
between a Bahamian employ-
er and a trade union “every
employer is entitled to modi-
fy... the rate of contributions
payable” to eliminate any
“overlap” of benefits with the
proposed NHI scheme.

And, Clause 14(2) stipulates
that “no employer shall make
any modification (to their pri-
vate insurance coverage) with-
out obtaining the prior writ-
ten approval of the minister.”

DPM’s husband ‘was only treated at
Cleveland Clinic on doctor’s orders’

A CIVIL servant, in an
interview. with The Tribune
Thursday, wanted all politi-
cians backing government’s

Et national health plan to stop

going to the Mayo Clinic and
other foreign healthcare facil-
ities and stand in line with oth-
er Bahamians at Princess Mar-
garet Hospital for treatment.

He listed the names of sev-
eral prominent Bahamians
treated overseas, including the
husband of Deputy Prime

“Minister Cynthia Pratt.

‘Today, Joseph Pratt object-
ed to the suggestion that he
bypassed PMH for treatment
overseas. He also denied that
he was treated at Mount Sinai
Hospital, as the civil servant
had told The Tribune.

_ Mr Pratt said that when he

: - was taken seriously ill last year

he was admitted to the
Princess Margaret. Hospital,
where he spent five days.
“The reason that I was air-
lifted to the Cleveland Clinic
in Orlando was that the
Princess Margaret Hospital,
either did not have the
machine necessary to do the

tests that I required, or the
machine was down. The same
machine was down at Doctor’s
Hospital,” he said.

“It was Dr Conville Brown,
who discovered what I had and
it was he who had me airlifted
to Cleveland Clinic. He accom-
panied me there. I was lying
in the Princess Margaret Hos- '
pital for five days, but I could-
n’t be properly treated with-
out the tests,” Mr Pratt said.

Mr Pratt was in the @léve-
land Clinic for three days and
another two days in a hotel
from which he went to the
Clinic. “And it was all paid
for by my'private insurance,” -
he said. ~

“Bahamian doctors have
always been in charge of my
treatment,” said Mr Pratt: “It
was only on doctor’s orders -
that I was airlifted overseas.”

* It is Dr Brown who dis-
agrees with the. National
Health Insurance Bill as
presently proposed by gov-
ernment; and has recom-
mended that government con-
sider instead a “partnered
care” programme.

“Partnered Care,” said Dr
Brown, “is a novel, cost-effec-
tive means of making costly and
advanced, state-of-the art med-
ical services available to the gen-
eral population, irrespective of
their ability to pay.” The part-
ners in the programme would

Papal visit cools Islamic anger

- ISTANBUL, Turkey (AP) — After
Pope Benedict XVI infuriated the Islamic
world with his remarks on holy war, Vati-
can officials scrambled to save his planned
trip to predominantly Muslim Turkey.
Two months later, there was the Ger-
man pontiff on Thursday not only visiting
istanbul but praying beside an imam in the
city’s famous Blue Mosque.

“A single swallow can’t bring spring, but
many swallows will follow and we will
enjoy a spring in this world,” a clearly sat-
isfied Mustafa Cagrici, Istanbul’s head cler-
ic, told Benedict after praying with him.

It has taken a combination of Vatican
diplomacy, negotiations through Catholic
bishops in Turkey and Benedict’s own care-
fully nuanced gestures to. create the cli-
mate to make his visit to Turkey an appar-
ent success. ;

“The Pope is Winning Hearts and
Minds,” the Turkish Daily News headlined
Friday.

A member of the pope’s entourage, Car-
dinal Roger Etchagaray, compared the

mosque visit to Pope John Paul II’s dra-,

matic stop at Israel’s Western Wall, where
he left a copy of his declaration asking

. God’s forgiveness for sins committed

against the Jews.

“Benedict did for the Muslims what J Shy
Paul did for the Jews,” the cardinal told
reporters.

The pope, who was initially hailed by
some for speaking frankly, has. held to his
positions —- condemning violence in the
name of religion and demanding freedom
of religion. But he’s refrained from point-
ing a finger at Islam.

After Al-Qaida in Iraq, in a message on
an Islamic militant Web site Wednesday,
called the visit to Turkey part-of a “cru-
sader campaign” against Islam, the Vatican
shot back that the comments showed the
need to fight “violence in the name of
God.”

“This type of message shows once again
the urgency and importance of a common
commitment of all forces against violence,”
Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico
Lombardi said.

Benedict repeated in several speeches

that Europe’s “Christian roots, traditions
and values” must be preserved to “con-
tribute to the culture of a future Europe.”
But in a major gesture to his Turkish hosts
and the Islamic community at large, he
gave support to Turkey’s efforts to meet
the standards for admission to the Euro-
pean Union. -

This already moved him away from the

position he held as a cardinal, when he
questioned whether Turkey had the prop-
er cultural bonds with Europe.
“He came here with humility, and for
the (Roman Catholic) pontiff that takes
an act of courage,” said the Rev. Alexander
Karloutsos, a Greek Orthodox clergymen
who planned the Istanbul meetings
between Benedict and the spiritual leader
of Orthodox Christians, Ecumenical Patri-
arch Bartholomew I.
After Benedict’s Sept. 12 remarks on

Islam and violence at Regensburg Univer-

sity in Germany incensed Muslims around

-. the world, there were calls for Turkey to

cancel his visit and fears for, Benedict’s
personal safety. That was reflected by the
pope’s security force in Turkey, the largest
ever mounted on a papal trip.

Benedict’s visit to the Blue Mosque was
only the second in history by a pontiff after

Pope John Paul II’s 2001 trip to a mosque’

in Damascus, Syria.

The pope bowed his head and closed his
eyes for nearly a minute. As he-left the
17th century mosque, the pope turned to

Cagrici and thanked him “for this moment

of prayer.”

“This visit will help us find together the .

way of peace for the good of all humanity,”
the pope said.

Lombardi said the mosque visit was evi-
dence that the Regensburg speech was a
“taking-off point” for Benedict’s attempt at

a genuine dialogue between Catholicism

and Islam. Despite the tension and con-
troversy, he contended. that Repouseue
“bore positive fruit.”

THE TRIBUNE



The Attorney
General and ©
political life

EDITOR, The Tribune ©

HAD I still been a member of
The Bahamas Bar Association, I
would have been there for 30
years. This longevity in the legal
profession has exposed me to the
modus operandi of several of our
learned Attorney Generals during
this period.

The 1984 Commission of

Inquiry recommended, inter alia,

that several politically connected
persons should be prosecuted for
various alleged offences. ‘The Hon
Paul L Adderley, a great legal
scholar and orator par excellence,
was the then Attorney General.

* Jt would have fallen within his
portfolio to make a decision as
to prosecution of at least one ‘old’
PLP cabinet minister and several
high ranking civil servants who,
allegedly, were partisans of the
‘old’ PLP generally and the late

great Sir Lynden Oscar Pindling —

in particular. Mr. Adderley was
then a member of the ‘old’ PLP
and the MP for St Michael’s. -
In a public forum, Mr. Adderley
lamented that: ‘If I were to do
my job as Attorney General, I

_ would never get another nomi-

nation from the Progressive Lib-
or words to that
effect. I do not know whether or
not he ‘did his job’ or not, but
there were some persons who
were not charged and every one
of those who were charged were
acquitted or the prosecution
offered no real evidence.

I am certain that the learned

gentleman had absolutely noth- ~
ing to do with the success or oth- ©

erwise of those prosecutions but
his gratuitous comments were not

_ designed to instil confidence, in

my view, in the general public. In
any event, Mr. Adderley served
out his term for St Michael’s but
he never ran again, successfully.
Our current Attorney General
was a Defendant, et al, in Civil

Action # 277 of 2001 wherein a _
‘Consent Order’ involving mil-

lions of dollars was signed off on
by Mr Justice John Lyons on the
1st day of December, AD, 2003.
Can this, legitimately, be the pos-
sible ‘source’ of the apparent ven-

om in the ongoing saga between’

herself and the learned judge?

We inherited our constitution-
al system from the UK, almost
hook: line and sinker. Our Attor-
ney General is either an elected
member of the House of Assem-
bly or an appointed Senator
belonging to the governing party
of the day. As such, the AG usu-
ally is expected to toe the party
line; attend parliamentary caucus
and to act as the lead legal advis-
er to that government.

Where this scenario obtains, it
is clear that the ‘temptation’ is
there for an AG to see things,

politically, from his/her party’s.

view point. It has been said that:

“Justice is blind”, but. even the

real blind man knows better than
that. As a lawyer by training, I
have long suspected that the |
blindfolded lady, who represents
the impartiality of “justice”, peeks
out from behind her blindfold at

times. Indeed, here in The
Bahamas, I submit that, legally,
many kisses still go by favour.

In any event, I do agree with
the former learned Attorney
General that the pubic and debil-
itating ‘spat’ between the major
protagonists herein must come to
an immediate halt if more ero-
sion and damage are not.to be
done to the public confidence,

both locally and internationally,
in our judiciary and organs of |

government.

The constitution must and
should be amended so that at
some future point, the Attorney
General, along: with the almost
now defunct office of the Solicitor
General, should be an ‘impartial’
one and the holders thereof,
should not sit in either house of
the legislature or be an active card
carrying member of a political
entity.

A Leal Affairs Minister, com-
pletely separated from the AG’s

Office, would sit in the house or
in the senate, purely as a political
animal and not in sofe sort of
quasi-judicial role. Unfortunately,
however, Christie does not
appear to have the political will
power to usher in constitutional
changes and, in any event, it is
much too late for him to even
think about them at this stage.

Political stances taken by vari-
ous Attorneys General over the
years have often, in my view, con-
flicted with national policies
and/or sentiments. Check out the
Samuel Ninety Knowles saga and -
the political fall out which, as true.
as night follows day, will ‘haunt’
the ‘new’ PLP come the general
elections of 2007.

Do you recall the situation with

_a young man of Greek heritage,

some years ago? A nolli prosequi
was entered by the then AG,
much to the apparent disquiet of
the general public. There are any
number of other instances where
a stance by an AG ended up caus-
ing egg, or worse, to be flung in
his/her party’s collective face.

It’s a good thing that Yahweh is
not a lawyer, as far as we know.
To God then, in all of these judi-
cial and extrajudicial matters, be
the glory.

| Take NHI to referendum

‘EDITOR, The Tribune

DR Bernard J Nottage seems to be influenced by the PLP
Cabinet and some ill-informed PLP advisers who are telling him



what he wants to hear. The Prime Minister trusts his judgment but
the average Bahamian does not trust him or the Prime Minister.

The opinions from the bootlickers who kow-tow to the lead-
ership of the PLP will no doubt sing the praises of the PLP gov-
ernment even if they are talking nonsense. There‘is a‘small group:
who do not read or.understand anything but because. the. PLP are
advancing the National Health Insurance, it is okay. They, with-

‘out even checking out. the. pros.and cons are. saying “yes” to.
everything Dr Nottage is saying. There is no secret that the PLP
will try to use the NHI to help them win the election.

Ihave one simple suggestion. If the PLP believe so strongly that
the Bahamian people are so much in favour of the NHI why
not put it to a referendum? This is a good yardstick to see if NHI
has popular appeal, not “ram it down our throats.” Iam begging:

the good “know-it-all” doctor to test the waters. Take it to a ref-
erendum if he feels so strongly, no long talk. Something as seri-
ous as this should be determined by the people, not just a choice
-few. Let the Bahamian people see how much guts you have.
Bahamians who strongly disagree should rally together and take

to the streets. “Talk is cheap”.

Widow files $1m claim

against Isle of Capr i Mikey hechocect cent

i By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter

FREEPORT - The widow of
a man who died of severe
injuries, allegedly following a
severe beating at the hands Isle
Capri Casino guards last Feb-

tuary, has filed a $1 million law- °

suit in the Supreme Court

- against the casino’s operators.

Lawyer George Missick of
Callenders and Co is represent-

ing Velma McIntosh in an .

action against Isle of Capri Inc
in the death of her husband,
Simeon McIntosh Sr.
McIntosh, 44, was at Isle of
Capri on February 5, 2005,
when the incident occurred: He

. allegedly sustained severe neck

injuries and died in hospital on
February 28, 2005.

The writ alleges that the
action taken by the security offi-
cers in regard to Mr McIntosh
was “unjustified and excessive”.

Mr Missick confirmed that he
is seeking damages — on behalf
the deceased’s wife under the
Survival of Action Act, and on
behalf of his children under
Fatal Accidents Act 1992 — in
the region of $1 million.

In the writ, it is claimed that
Mr McIntosh, who was
employed at Lightbourne’s
Seafood at the time of his death,
earned a salary, including com-
mission, of $26,900 a year.

A substantial portion of his .

income was spent on the bene-
fit of his children, whose ages
range from 11 to 18 years, it
said

The writ alleges that the offi-
cers, who were employees of
Isle Capri, wrongfully and with-

- out lawful justification prevent-

éd Mr McIntosh from entering
the casino, and assaulted and
battered him by intentionally

THE TRIBUNE





Ls REE PEE

THE FOUNTAIN
Starring: Hugh Jackman,
Rachel Weisz

WHEN director Darren

Aronofsky exploded onto the ©

scene with the low-budget/high
concept metaphysical thriller Pi,
it was clear that he was talent
not to be ignored.

Pi was followed by Requiem
for a Dream, a nightmarish tale
of drug addiction, which
expanded on some of the gim-

‘micks from the director's first
movie and added a whole bunch
of new ones.

Now we have The Fountain,
which is undeniably interesting,
but shows that perhaps Aronol-

sky should concentrate more on-

his strengths.

The ambitious storyline takes
place in three different time
zones: ac aquistador (Jack-
man) in the .¢th century search-
ing for the Fountain of Youth
for his queen (Weisz), a doctor
desperately trying to save his



wife (Jackman — again — and

Weisz in these roles) from dying
in the present day, and a futur-
istic astronaut (Jackman again)
travelling in strange organic
bubble towards a distant star.
Aside from Jackman and
Weisz’s multiple roles, all three
stories are connected by the
theme of eternal life and a book
that the present day incarnation
of Weisz is working on.
There’s no doubt the past and
future episodes are the strongest.
Although a few of the conquis-
tador parts come across as a lit-
tle stagebound, the ones that

work are incredible and Aronof-

sky manages to throw in some
breathtakingly surreal moments.

But the. bizarre. future
sequences are the most visually
spectacular by far —:with a

@ THREE parallel
stories told through the
odyssey taken on by
one man (Hugh Jack-
man) in his thousand-
year struggle to save
the woman he loves
(Rachel Weisz) in
“The Fountain.”

Bros
Entertainment/

shaven-headed Jackman
hurtling through space while
tending to a huge breathing tree
(don’t ask).
It’s the modern day moments
that are weakest — and almost

- fatal — they’re just too senti-

mental and self-conscious to
really work. Jackman and Weisz
don’t seem to have enough
spark between them and all-out

drama isn’t the director’s strong

point.

With a bit more self-discipline
on ‘Aronofsky’s part, The Foun-
tain could have been something
really special. But, although he
maybe has bitten off more then
he can chew there’s still infi-
nitely more imagination on
show here than in your usual
mainstream movie fare.

Christie pays homage to Pat Bain

courage and an indomitable
spirit with which he lifted his
ailing body to the challenge of
elections one more time; with
shoulders held high and a pur-
poseful stride — handling the
pain and fatigue,” Mr Christie
said.

He said Pat Bain represented
“the bridge between: the past
and the present” in the pro-
gression of industrial relations
in the Bahamas.

“He brought to the bar-
gaining table a new and com-
pelling ethos and a new arse-

nal of weapons to advance the.

cause of the workers of our
land.

“He believed deeply that
the best way forward was to







be found in the power. of rea-

son; persuasion by the appli--

cation of reason,” Mr Christie
said.

The prime minister said it is
his sincere hope that those who
will now rise to fill the vacuum
created by Pat Bain’s death will
honour his memory and per-
petuate his legacy.

“On behalf of the people of:

the Bahamas, and on my per-
sonal behalf and that of my
family, I extend my very sin-
cere condolences to Pat’s
bereaved family and to all the
members of that mass family
of trade union members
whom he served so loyally
and effectively for so long,”
he said.

He said that, while it is clear
that there are general invest-
ments that must be made by the
government and multilateral
lending agencies in infrastruc-
ture both physical and institu-
tional, the fact is that the most
equitable form of development
will take place when the peo-
ple of Haiti and their talents are
properly harnessed and
enhanced by an investment in
the people.

The minister pointed out that

the: Bahamas has more than a
passing interest in Haiti.
“Haiti sits about 90 miles to
the south of us and there is a
history of both legal, and in
recent times, mainly illegal
migration to The Bahamas from
Haiti. We have been working
with successive governments
toward building democracy and
toward stabilising the economy
of Haiti in concert with the
international community.
“Sadly, on many occasions we
have seen our hopes dashed
when the world lost interest in
Haiti’s future. There seemed to
be the view that once the job was
done, the world could pack up
and go home,” the minister said.
This time, Mr Mitchell said

Force and hope that we can help
them improve,” he said.

Major General Spears said he
hopes to “enhance our collective
defence capabilities” and work
together with Bahamian agencies
in times of natural disasters and in
combating global terrorism.

“Our greatest challenge as
neighbours and partners is to
improve the security, so that as
sovereign nations we can con- __
trol our borders,” he said.

During his stay in the
Bahamas, the general also vis-
ited the Atlantic Undersea Test-
ing and Evaluation Centre
(AUTEC) in Andros.

Major General Spears said that
he was impressed with the
research work done at AUTEC,
and especially impressed with the
“environmental stewardship.”

At this point in time, he said,
the alliance between the US and
Bahamian forces is so strong
that there are no areas that
need particular improvement.

He emphasised that the
USSOUTHCOM is dedicated
to becoming the “leading joint-
and inter-agency Orsanisalion
in the region.

“An organisation that uses all
of the resources available to
seek to support security, and
stability and prosperity in the
Americas,” he said.

“This means that we cannot
think that the job is ever done.
Haiti needs our help and the

stability and peace of our hemi

sphere and indeed the world is
dependent on how Haiti is
helped. We cannot afford to
fail,” he said.

Most recently Deputy Prime
Minister Cynthia Pratt, who is
also the Minister for National
Security, visited Haiti with the

training for Haitian police offi-
cers at the Bahamas Police Col-
lege in Nassau.

Ambassador Eugene Newry
has played a full role in seeking
to advance the cause of busi-

ber of Commerce has been
asked to work with the private
sector of Haiti to see what trade
and commercial opportunities
there are.

“That is some of what we are
pledged to do with our meagre
resources. We believe that more
can be done by the internation-
al community. We must end the
depletion of Haiti’s human cap-
ital by seeking to find ways for
Haitians to remain at home and
not lose their talents and exper-
tise by moving abroad.

“Our message then is a sim-
ple one. Haiti continues to need
our help. All who can help
should help, each to his own
measure. It is important that
we remember the commitment
that we all have to Haiti and
her people,” Mr Mitchell said.

Senior Sports Reporter

THE St Thomas More Sparks
celebrated their third Catholic
Diocesan Primary Schools’ bas-
ketball championship title with
a hard fought 56-53 overtime
victory. over the St. Cecilia’s
Strikers.

In what could have been con-
sidered one of the best champi-
onships in some time, the
Sparks pulled off the best-of-

three series in the third and

decisive game yesterday at Loy-
ola Hall.

It was in the extra frye waits
period that the Sparks turned
the heat up another notch as
point guard Yorick Sands. got
on fire, striping a couple passes

and racing down the other end-

of the court to score 12 of his 19
points.

The game was tied at 39-39
at the end of regulation, but it

--was St Thomas More who took

~ the early lead in the extra peri-

od and. they maintained a four-
point advantage as they surged
to victory.

“Thank God, thank God,”

~ were the words that Sparks’

coach Leo Delanéy iittéred;try- *

ing to gain his composure as. the
team celebrated with their fam-

“ily and friends.

The last time the Sparks cel-
ebrated was 2003, but Delaney
said this was probably the
sweetest. :

“St Cecilia’s played a hell of a |

game,” he charged. “They made
us play for. this one.’

The. fourth-place ‘Anishersin:

the regular season, the Sparks
played like true champions as
they kept their composure and
did not fold up when the Strik-
ers struck.

What Sands did not do, Der-

rol Collie made up for it with 12

points to assist in the Sparks’
win. But Sands said ‘he knew

that they had the team to do it..

“The fourth quarter:was our

scoring, quarter,” said: the 10-
year-old fifth grader, who will’.

be. looking back for an encore

next year. “We played well that }

way in most of our games.”

Despite the loss, coach Como '

Ferguson said he iad to tip his
hat to his Strikers.

Sparks put out the =
~ to take championship title —

“Tt was good. They played
great,” he said. “I knew we
would have played a good
game, ‘but not in overtime. I

. think we had our problems

when we got a couple of players
in foul trouble.

“We were down to our last
five people on the court, but the
fouls really killed it us. It mur-

_ dered us. We played well. We _
‘played hard. They just played

a little better than us.’

Nikita Dames came up with a
game-high 20 points, just six in
overtime. But he only convert-
ed two of his eight free throws
as he tried to keep the team
going.

“Everybody was just getting .

fouled out and I had four fouls,”

Dames said. “But in overtime, I

had to let the other guys get
fouled and I tried to stay in the
game,”

Even though they fell short,
Dames, said they still have the

‘consolation of playing in their

first championship series.
“This is our first time play-

ing in arena,” he said. “I just

want to tell my team to just

keeping on training and if they —

do what the coaches tell them,

“they could be‘champions.” “5
' Kwasi Dames, one. of the
; players who will ‘be. back next

year to try and get St Cecillia’s
their first championship title,
finished with 15 points in the
loss.

’ Things started to turn for the
worse for the Strikers when
they lost forward Dwight Butler
to five fouls. But it sort of even
itself, out a couple plays later
when the Sparks’ centre Andre
Stubbs had to sit on the bench.

Throughout the game, ‘nei-
ther team was able to open any

considerable lead; which had .
’ the fans on edge as the coaches

tried to make the necessary |
- adjustments play after play.

In fact, it got out of hand at
one point when the parents

“ coaching on the sidelines had
‘to be restrained from getting
‘too close to the sidelines.

At the end of the game, the
Sparks’ fans rushed on the court
in celebration with the players.
There’s no doubt that the cele-
brations will continue at St
Thomas More on Monday..

THE Bahamas. Olympic

Association has postponed its .

elections for three months after
the financial report submitted
by treasurer Vincent Wallace-

_ Whitfield was rejected by the

membership over technical mat-
ters.

The elections were scheduled
for Thursday night at the Nas-
sau Yacht Club during the
annual general meeting. But
because of perceived discrep-
ancies.in the report by Wallace-
Whitfield, the election was nev-
er held.

Incumbent secretary Larry
‘Doc’ Davis confirmed yester-
day that the AGM had been

» postponed until next year, when

a committee had met to review
the report.

Thé committee appointed will
comprise of Rommel Knowles,
president of the Bahamas Soft-
ball Federation; Larry Wilson,
first vice-president of the
Bahamas Basketball Federation
and Sam Haven, a vice-presi-
dent of the Bahamas Football
Association. f

Incumbent Arlington Butler,
who will be seeking his eighth
consecutive term in office as
president, is also expected to be
part of the committee as an ex-
officio member. Wallace-Whit-
field will also be a part of the
committee.

The AGM was well attend-
ed by executives from all of the
affiliated national associations

_and federations.

The list included. the
Bahamas Association of Ath-
letic Associations; the Bahamas
Baseball Association; the
Bahamas Basketball Federa-
tion; the Amateur Cycling Fed-
eration of the Bahamas; the
Bahamas Football Association;
the Bahamas Sailing Associa-
tion; the Bahamas Softball Fed-
eration; Amateur Boxing Fed-

eration of the Bahamas; the ae Tribune wants to hear

details, Davis said the financial



port is rejected

report was mainly not accept-
ed because it had not been
approved and signed by Butler.

“It was moved and he
approved that he should have
a chance to look it over,” Davis
said. “I think what happened
was that they were not done
early enough and they were not
signed.”

With the financial report
being deferred, Davis said the

“consensus from the body was

that the elections be postponed
until the financial report has
been properly finalised and
signed by Butler.

Wilson, who also declined to
go into any full details of why
they rejected the financial
report, simply said there was
no suggestion that anything
fraudulent was going on.

“There were just some small

‘technicalities why the financial

statement was not accepted,”
Wilson said. “Up front, my ini-
tial feeling is that there will not
be any significant changes.
There were just real small tech-
nicalities.”

As for the elections, it is
being rumoured that that are
plans to have a number of the
federation executives challenge
the outgoing executive board
members for the various posi-
tions.

- However, it is also being
rumoured that Butler is not

expected to be challenged.

Whenever the elections are
held, candidates for office can
be nominated from the floor,
but they must be a current or
past executive of any of the

-affiliated associations. and fed-

erations.

Collingwood ends on
98 as England team
commands first day

m@ CRICKET

ADELAIDE, Australia
Associated Press



PAUL Collingwood’s 98 not

-,out and Kevin Pietersen’s
unbeaten half-century helped
England reach a dominating 266
for three Friday on the first day
of the second Ashes cricket test
against Australia.

Batting in front of 31,458
spectators — the largest test
match crowd at the Adelaide
Oval since 1975 — England sup-
pressed an urge toward self-
destruction to play itself into a
strong position by stumps after
winning the toss and deciding
to bat.

Collingwood shared partner-
ships of 113 with Ian Bell and

an unbroken 108 with Pietersen
through the day’s second and
third sessions to restore the
England innings after the loss
of both openers before lunch.

Collingwood was poised to
achieve the century he was
denied when he was out for 96
in the second innings of the first
test at Brisbane, a match won
by Australia by 277 runs.

Pietersen was on 60, sustain-
ing the form that brought him
92 in the same innings and the
buccaneering spirit which char-
acterized his pivotal contribu-

tion to England’s Ashes victory
at home last year.

From 45 for two when open-
ers Andrew Strauss and Alas-
tair Cook were out, Colling-
wood steered England through
a warm, testing afternoon to the
safety of stumps.

Collingwood resisted the
temptation to bid for his cen-
tury before the close of play.
He was out prematurely in Bris-
bane, charging down the wicket
to pursue his hundred with a
single shot, but he lingered in
the high 90s for the last several
overs Friday and didn’t let anx-
iety prevail.

Collingwood and Bell had
batted through the entire sec-
ond session, bringing up their
half-centuries almost simulta-
neously in the final over

before tea. Bell batted 175.

minutes to reach the mark,
Collingwood 147 and both
interspersed their innings with
four fours.

Bell was out early in the final
session, after increasing his
score to 60 with successive fours
off Brett Lee. He was attempt-
ing another hooked boundary
when the ball flew from the top
edge and Lee, following
through, took the catch a meter
from the batsman.

Bell said Friday’s more stoic

performance from England was .

the result of collective soul-
searching after the first-test loss.

“There was a bit of honesty
that we weren’t good enough
in Brisbane,” he said. “We all
said today was an important
day. Whether it was batting or
bowling we had to go out and

do well.”

Collingwood and Pietersen,
united by Bell’s dismissal,
added 122 runs in the post-tea
session.

Pietersen dashed to his 50 in
82 minutes, from 69 balls, with
successive pulled boundaries off
Shane Warne. His half century
included four fours and a six,
also hit off Warne, which was
driven inside-out over the long-
off boundary: one of the longest
boundaries in world cricket.

Warne, who entered the
attack after only 77 minutes ‘and
in the day’s 18th over, finished
with no wicket for 85 runs from
27 overs.

The second new ball was tak-
en shortly before the day’s end,
when England was 254-3, as
Collingwood and Pietersen
resisted Lee and Clark in a dra-
matic prelude to stumps.
Collingwood’s century beck-
oned maddeningly as he
remained on 98 through the last
two overs.

Clark finished the day as
Australia’s best bowler with two
from 25 from 15 overs, sharing
the second new ball with Lee
after being bowled sparingly in
the late afternoon. Lee took
Bell’s wicket at a stiff cost of 77
runs from 20 overs.

“The results showed it was
tough work,” Clark said. “The
wicket’s fairly flat. The boys
stuck at it pretty well all day
but maybe a couple more wick-
ets would have been nice.”

Clark said Collingwood was a
challenging player to bowl to.

“He’s a good player, he
knows his game, he sticks to
what he’s good at it and can
occupy the crease for long peri-
ods of time,” Clark said.

Argentina and
Russia split —







TENNIS...

_. MOSCOW
-- AssociatedPress...





DAVID Nalbandian beat a
struggling Marat Safin 6-4, 6-4,
6-4 Friday to give Argentina a
1-1 tie with Russia at the Davis

. Cup final.

Nalbandian withstood 21 aces
from the powerful but erratic
Safin to win on indoor carpet
at Moscow’s Olympic Stadium.
Boisterous Argentine fans
included soccer great Diego
Maradona. .

Nikolay Davydenko gave
Russia an early lead, defeating
Juan Ignacio Chela 6-1, 6-2, 5-7,
6-4. The third-ranked Davy-
denko, who had lost five previ-
ous matches against Chela,
overcame shaky starts in his ear-
ly service games and a third-set
stumble.

“The final, at home — how
could I not be nervous?” Davy-
denko said. “I lost the third set
because I made so many mis-
takes. In the fourth set, I made
fewer and played well.”

Dmitry Tursunov . and
Mikhail Youzhny continue Rus-
sia’s attempt for a first title since
2002 against Nalbandian and
Agustin Calleri in Saturday’s
doubles. The decisive reverse
singles are scheduled for Sun-
day.

“I’m fresh for tomorrow,”
Nalbandian said. “When I
thought about the match, I

thought it would be tougher, so
three sets ... it’s great. The

- weekend’s not over yet.”



albandian..broke Safin.
when the Russian double-fault-
ed after four aces and a flurry
of deuces in the first game,

enough of an advantage to take

the first set.

Safin survived two break:

points and fired an ace to open
the second set, but ceded his
next service game when he
double-faulted at deuce and
then netted a backhand. Nal-
bandian broke again at the
next opportunity and,
although Safin broke to close

the gap to 5-3, the Argentine -

took the set.

The two traded service wins
in the third set before Safin
handed his opponent two break
points and Nalbandian took a
4-3 lead when the Russian sent
a shot long.

Russia questioned the crucial
call in one of 29 challenges —
nine of them successful — using
the Hawk-Eye video system,
which is making its Davis Cup
debut, but the review showed
Safin’s shot was clearly out.

Nalbandian survived two
break points in the next game
before making it 5-3, then
served out the match at love,
capping it with another ace.

Safin had seven double faults
to go with his flurry of aces.

Safin blamed the surface,

coach Shamil Tarpishchev, say-
ing it suited Nalbandian “per-
fectly” but hurt-his game.

.. ‘It was hard to find my game,
it was hard io play my tennis
on this surface,” Satin said. “l’m
very upset that 1 couldn’t bring
my team a point.”

meturning to the venue where

he won the Kremlin Cup in
October, Davydenko, a winner
of five titles this season, over-
powered Chela in the first two
sets.
- In the third set, Davydenko
trailed 4-1 when Chela broke
him for the first time. The Russ-
ian recovered by breaking back
and took the set to 5-5 before
Chela broke him again to win 7-
5.

After time out for a thigh
massage in the fifth set, Chela
came within 4-3. But Davy-
denko ended his next service
game with his seventh ace.

Chela then held serve, surviving .

a break point.

Leading 5-4, Davydenko
earned two match points with
a service winner and closed it
out with another service win-
ner.

Russia, unbeaten at home in
11 years, is making its fourth
appearance in the final and
looking for its second Davis
Cup win after beating. France

won the title, losing to the Unit-

lead and West had no entry card to
cash his spades, South made three
notrump.

At the second table, the contract
went down one after. East played the
queen of spades on the opening trick
rather than the ace. Declarer could
not be blamed for taking the queen
with the king and trying the diamond
finesse. When he. did so, East won
with the king and played the ace and
another spade to defeat the contract.

East’s play of the queen of spades
at trick one was clearly correct. He
was looking at 11 points in his own
hand and 12 in dummy. Since South
was known to have at least 16 points
for his opening notrump bid, ac-
counting for 39 of the 40 points in
the deck, East was in a position to
know that West had at most on
point. : ‘

Consequently, West could not
have a side entry to cash his spades.
East therefore played the queen in
order to force out the king and in that
way create an entry to his partner’s
hand.

It is true that South could have -

thwarted East’s play by ducking the
queen, but he was naturally: afraid
that the whole spade suit would be
run against him if, as was certainly
possible, West held five or six spades
headed by the A-J.

financial venture you were consider-
ing, Leo. Let’s just say the stars are
showing that something may not be
on the “up and up” with this deal.

If you like roller coasters, Virgo,-*’-‘
then you’re going to love the week °‘.’

you’re about to have. There will be
‘no time for boredom because your’
schedule will be jam-packed.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23

' Give a lot of thought to your actions,

Libra, because this week you cannot
get along by winging it. Expect a rep-

rimand at work. But the entire situa- |

tion settles down by day’s end.

SCORPIO — Oct 24/Nov 22
Does the sound of a few days of rest
and relaxation sound good to you,
Scorpio? It probably does, consider-
ing you’ve been working yourself to
the bone for quite a while now.

SAGITTARIUS — Nov 23/Dec 21
It’s time to make moments count with
a family member with whom you’ve

had a recent falling out, Sagittarius.

Be honest and accept responsibility
for anything you’ve done. ;

CAPRICORN — Dec 22/Jan 20 -

If you’re looking for a ray of sunshine,
you’ ll find it with family members who
are close by, Capricom. They’re just
looking to spread their good fortune
and spirits to you.

AQUARIUS -— Jan 21/Feb 18

Patience is a virtue not many people
possess, Aquarius. Youll need it in
droves when you support a loved
one who is experiencing a rough
patch. All things pass, however.

PISCES — Feb 19/Mar20

Do not take on any more work, Pisces,
unless you want to get. bumt out. You
have enough on your plate to last for
days, so focus on that.

Blunder by AG’s Union leader Pat Bain laid to rest

- office could see

child molester’ S
sentence cut

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

_ A CHILD molester convict-

ed of.having sexual intercourse _.
‘of immediate imprisonment

with an 11-year-old girl could

have his seven-year prison sen-
tence reduced because the |
Attorney General’s office failed -

to notify him of its appeal against
the lower court’s: three-year sus-
pended sentence.
The Privy Council in London
has ruled to set aside the extend-

. ed prison term for sexual offend- .

er Richard George Campbell,
and send the matter back to the

-~ Appeals Court to allow the
~ rehearing of the Attorney Gen-

eral’s appeal.

According to the ruling, on
December 1, 2004, Campbell
was convicted on one count of
sexual intercourse with a person
under the age of fourteen.

He was sentenced to a term



“There is... some
not very satisfactory
evidence about the
Court of Appeal’s
practice regarding
the notification

of Spee gnune |

criminal appea

Privy Council ruling

of three years imprisonment,

which was suspended for three
years, and ordered “to enter into

_’ arecognisance of $1,000 to keep

the peace and be of good behav-
iour for those three years.”

“The appellant’s offence
occurred in: November 1999
when (then in his late forties) he
licked the vagina of the eleven-
year-old daughter of the woman
he was then living with, causing
the girl to be ‘scared and uncom-
fortable’ and threatening that if
she reported the incident her
family would revert to the pover-
ty in which they had previously
lived.

“She (the victim) in fact
delayed the reporting until
December the following. year,”
the Privy Council summarised

‘. in its judgment.

Campbell was arrested in Jan-

uary 2001 and committed for tri-

al in April the same year.
Following his sentencing, the
Privy Council stated, Attorney
General Allyson Maynard-Gib-
son “at once applied for leave
to appeal against the sentence,

essentially on the ground that it ~

was unduly lenient.”
On March 14, 2004 the Court

et of Appeal first gave the Attor--

‘ney General leave to appeal and —

subsequently: allowed the appeal,
substituting for the three-year
suspended sentence imposed at
trial, a term of seven years

instead.

A warrant for Campbell’s a
‘arrest was also immediately |

issued.

However, Campbell ‘ ‘was nei-

ther present nor represented

before the Court of Appealand .°

it is that which gives rise to the
present appeal before this Board

(the Judicial Committee of the.

Privy Council).”
“The appellant contends that

he was never informed of the ©

date of the appeal hearing and
never consented to its being
heard in his absence,” the

Privy Council stated in its judg-

ment.

The Privy Council ruled that it
is “common ground” that no
attempts were made after the

initial service of the notice of the

Attorney General’s appeal appli-
cation on Campbell’s lawyer to
notify him of the date of the
hearing or to invite the lawyer’s

assistance in notifying the appel-_

lant.

“On February 25, 2005 ‘the
Court of Appeal’s bailiff sought
to serve the appellant personal-
ly at Fox Hill Prison with the
notice of hearing and the record

of the proceedings. Since, how-

vever, the appellant was not then
in custody, this attempt was obvi-
ously futile,” the Privy Council

said.

The Privy Council also criti-
cised the Bahamas’ ‘Court of
Appeal in its manner of notifying
défendants of their court dates.

“There is in addition some not

very satisfactory evidence about ~

the Court of Appeal’s practice

regarding the notification of |

forthcoming criminal appeals,”
the judges said.

The Privy Council ruled that’

the Court of Appeal had not
made the proper efforts to noti-
fy Campbell of the Attorney
General’s appeal against his
lenient sentencing.

“At the very least the Court of
Appeal would have had to satis-

. fy itself either that the appellant

must have known of the hearing
date and deliberately absented
himself or that he had deliber-
ately made it impossible to noti-
fy him in advance,” the Privy
Council said.

As a result the Privy Council
ruled to remit the case to the
Court of Appeal, set aside
Campbell’s sentence of seven
years’ imprisonment, and rehear
the Attorney General’s appeal.

The Privy Council advised that
these matters should all be dealt
with at a single hearing to be
convened as speedily as possi-

e.

Mitchell: Haiti still needs
the world’s assistance

HAITI continues to need
the world’s help, Foreign
Affairs Minister Fred Mitchell
told those gathered in Spain
for the International Confer-
ence for the Economic and
Social Development of Haiti.

He said all countries able to

assist should commit them- |

selves to Haiti and her people.
The minister said the
Bahamas is one of Haiti’s clos-
est neighbours and it was par-
ticularly important for the
country to be at the conference
to reaffirm support for the
democratic process in Haiti,
which can only be bolstered by
Haiti’s economic success.

Nay

The ministér said when one
visits Haiti, one cannot help
but be impressed by the indus-
try and aggression of its people
in the realm of buying and sell-’
ing.

“The city of Port-au-Prince
is awash with vendors plying
their wares. This spirit of
industry and hard work should |
be properly captured and
enhanced for the greater
national good. The donors who
are gathered here today to
reaffirm their commitment to
Haiti will help to do precisely -
that,” Mr Mitchell said.

resides, her lawyer, Wayne
Munroe, said yesterday.

Media reports had been cir-

Thompson the rightful owner

According to Mr Knowles, he

not being treated

@ By KRYSTEL ROLLE

MORE than 6,000 Bahami-
ans are living with the
HIV/AIDS virus yet only 2,000
of them are being treated,
Director of the National AIDS
programme Dr Perry Gomez
revealed yesterday.

“The urgent need for us now
is to get the other 4,000 to come
in and be evaluated to know
your status. As an HIV positive
person you must know your sta-
tus, meaning you must know
whether you need to be treated
or not,” he explained.

Even more worrying, he
added, is that the majority of per-
sons affected are young females
between the ages 15 and 30.

In an effort to create aware-
ness and to educate Bahamians,
more than 200 persons created a
human chain in the shape of the

. red ribbon, the symbol of

HIV/AIDS in Rawson’s Square
yesterday, World AIDS Day.

“Creating the red ribbon
reminds us that the fight still
goes on and there’s still a lot to
do and it’s also a symbol for-us
to reflect on those who have
died. Remembering what we
have gone through and what we
have yet to do,” Dr Gomez said:

Adding that they are focus-
ing on the youth, Dr Gomez
said they are working with the
Ministry of Education and
Youth and Sports bringing the
message of prevention.

“You can’t wait until the kids
are 15 to talk to them,” he said
because 10 year olds.are now
delivering babies.”

Ambassador John Rood, who
got tested yesterday at the



@ DR Barry Rassin from Doctors Hospital gets tested for AIDS
today to kick off world AIDS day

AIDS centre, agreed that it is
important that people know
their status.

“There are 40 million people

world wide that are infected.
Some 10 or 20 per cent know it
and that leaves 80 per cent or 32
million people that don’t know

’ their status and 32 million peo-

ple that are not taking advan-
tage of medication that may be

. available to them,” Ambassador

Rood said. "The bottom line is
that when you get tested you
know it's either going to be pos-
itive or negative, knowing your
status is key," she said. -
According to Ambassador
Rood, the US Embassy funds
$25 to $50 thousand per year as
well as several hundred thou-

. sand dollars in indirect funding

for facilities and labs in the
Bahamas. Camille Barnett,
President of the AIDS Foun-
dation, said that yesterday’s

event:in Rawson's Square was
simply an awareness event to
remind people.about HIV and
AIDS. According to Mrs Bar-
nett most of the proceeds from
the numerous fundraisers go to
some of the major projects.
“One of our major projects
right now is a group home. for
boys," Mrs Barnett said. These
are boys who are HIV positive.
They were living in the Princess
Margaret Hospital and we felt

. that that was not an appropriate

place for them to be living," she
said. She also pointed out that
people should get tested.
"You need to know the
information. HIV is not a death
sentence any more because the

‘medication is there," she said.

During December, World
Health Month, the Ministry of
Health in conjunction with the
Bahamas National HIV/AIDS
Centre will host several events.

Tn brief

MP voices
concern over
NIB managing
contributions

MP Whitney Bastian has
expressed concern about the
‘plan to have NHI contributions
collected by the National Insur-
ance Board.

“Here we have an organisa-
tion that already has problems in
accounting for the allocation of
funds over the past four years
and we are now considering .con-
tributing more funds to that
problem,” he pointed out.

‘Mr Bastian suggested that

rather than completely changing
the make-up of the health care
system, the government should
rethink the bureaucracy sur-
rounding the services current-
ly offered, embrace the power
of private insurance bodies and
harness the possibilities they
offer in subsidising costly tech-
nologies.

“For all these reasons and so
many more, I have no other
alternative but to reject this bill
in its current form and urge all
parliamentarians in this House
to do the same,” Mr Bastian
said in the House of Assembly
on Wednesday..

The debate on National .

Health Insurance will continue
in the House when it meets on
Wednesday, December 6.

Witney Bastian described
national health insurance as a
“cunning ploy” by the PLP
administration to attract more
votes for the upcoming elec-

During Mr Bastian’s speech
to parliament on the proposed

government for a lack of con-

ple in Andros “have heard
nothing of this bill.”

NHI a ‘cunning ploy to win votes’

Independent MP condemns government’s bill



system work to provide the
funding for a better, fairer sys-
tem into the future?”
According to the MP, the
Bahamas already has a system

that offers health care to every -

person regardless of their abil-
ity to pay.

“Does this system not allow
any one of our Bahamian citi-
zens to have their children
immunised, receive emergency
medical attention in times of
urgent need and receive nec-
essary medication in times of
illness? ;

“Why then does this gov-
ernment come to this house

with a bill that they say is to
offer all of our citizens a health
care?” he asked.

Mr Bastian said the govern-
ment was insulting the intelli-
gence of the House of Assem-
bly by suggesting that NHI
would provide a new service.

“It is blatantly obvious that
this is a cunning ploy to attract
more votes this coming election
year,” he said. :

The independent MP said
that if the government nation-
alised the health system, it will
be unable to support itself
financially in the future.

“By nationalising the health

system I see us removing com-
petition from the marketplace
and therefore reducing quality
services tothe end user. —

“By nationalising the health
system I see us denying the very
real contribution that private
health insurance has made to
the quality of services in the
country thus far, possibly reduc-
ing the effectiveness of this sec-
tor-in the future, and by nation-
alising the health system I see us
limiting the choice of the com-
mon man and reducing his over-
all income and standard of liv-
ing, regardless of his health risk
overall,” he said.

NHI will overburden employers, says union leader

fi. By ALEXANDRIO MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter

NATIONAL Health insur-
ance will put too much of a bur-

den on employers, according -
to union leader Elgin Douglas..

During an interview with The
Tribune the president of the
Bahamas Commercial Stores

es Supermarkets and Warehouse

Worker’s Union claimed that
his members are ‘still unsure
about the impact the proposed
health plan will have on group

“insurance already provided by

their employers.
- “The companies that I rep-

resent have good group insur-"

ance, and I don’t see any rea-

. son why that should change,”

he said.

Mr Douglas said he found
it-_puzzling that the govern-
ment wants to “rush” through
an initiative that has such
wide-reaching effects.

“Employers will start saying
that too much of the burden is
being placed on them, because
they already provide their
workers good private group
insurance,” said Mr Douglas

The veteran union leader
said he hopes the governmen-
t’s NHI plan does not upset

the “good relationship” -
- between some trade unions

and employers.

Some members of the busi-
ness. community have
expressed similar sentiments

about the government’s plan
to intervene in agreements
between unions and employers
under the proposed bill. »

In particular, they are con-
cerned about Clause 14, which
says that despite any group
health insurance agreement
between a Bahamian employ-
er and a trade union “every
employer is entitled to modi-
fy... the rate of contributions
payable” to eliminate any
“overlap” of benefits with the
proposed NHI scheme.

And, Clause 14(2) stipulates
that “no employer shall make
any modification (to their pri-
vate insurance coverage) with-
out obtaining the prior writ-
ten approval of the minister.”

DPM’s husband ‘was only treated at
Cleveland Clinic on doctor’s orders’

A CIVIL servant, in an
interview. with The Tribune
Thursday, wanted all politi-
cians backing government’s

Et national health plan to stop

going to the Mayo Clinic and
other foreign healthcare facil-
ities and stand in line with oth-
er Bahamians at Princess Mar-
garet Hospital for treatment.

He listed the names of sev-
eral prominent Bahamians
treated overseas, including the
husband of Deputy Prime

“Minister Cynthia Pratt.

‘Today, Joseph Pratt object-
ed to the suggestion that he
bypassed PMH for treatment
overseas. He also denied that
he was treated at Mount Sinai
Hospital, as the civil servant
had told The Tribune.

_ Mr Pratt said that when he

: - was taken seriously ill last year

he was admitted to the
Princess Margaret. Hospital,
where he spent five days.
“The reason that I was air-
lifted to the Cleveland Clinic
in Orlando was that the
Princess Margaret Hospital,
either did not have the
machine necessary to do the

tests that I required, or the
machine was down. The same
machine was down at Doctor’s
Hospital,” he said.

“It was Dr Conville Brown,
who discovered what I had and
it was he who had me airlifted
to Cleveland Clinic. He accom-
panied me there. I was lying
in the Princess Margaret Hos- '
pital for five days, but I could-
n’t be properly treated with-
out the tests,” Mr Pratt said.

Mr Pratt was in the @léve-
land Clinic for three days and
another two days in a hotel
from which he went to the
Clinic. “And it was all paid
for by my'private insurance,” -
he said. ~

“Bahamian doctors have
always been in charge of my
treatment,” said Mr Pratt: “It
was only on doctor’s orders -
that I was airlifted overseas.”

* It is Dr Brown who dis-
agrees with the. National
Health Insurance Bill as
presently proposed by gov-
ernment; and has recom-
mended that government con-
sider instead a “partnered
care” programme.

“Partnered Care,” said Dr
Brown, “is a novel, cost-effec-
tive means of making costly and
advanced, state-of-the art med-
ical services available to the gen-
eral population, irrespective of
their ability to pay.” The part-
ners in the programme would
be those with private insurance,

those who, although uninsured.

Papal visit cools Islamic anger

- ISTANBUL, Turkey (AP) — After
Pope Benedict XVI infuriated the Islamic
world with his remarks on holy war, Vati-
can officials scrambled to save his planned
trip to predominantly Muslim Turkey.
Two months later, there was the Ger-
man pontiff on Thursday not only visiting
istanbul but praying beside an imam in the
city’s famous Blue Mosque.

“A single swallow can’t bring spring, but
many swallows will follow and we will
enjoy a spring in this world,” a clearly sat-
isfied Mustafa Cagrici, Istanbul’s head cler-
ic, told Benedict after praying with him.

It has taken a combination of Vatican
diplomacy, negotiations through Catholic
bishops in Turkey and Benedict’s own care-
fully nuanced gestures to. create the cli-
mate to make his visit to Turkey an appar-
ent success. ;

“The Pope is Winning Hearts and
Minds,” the Turkish Daily News headlined
Friday.

A member of the pope’s entourage, Car-
dinal Roger Etchagaray, compared the

mosque visit to Pope John Paul II’s dra-,

matic stop at Israel’s Western Wall, where
he left a copy of his declaration asking

. God’s forgiveness for sins committed

against the Jews.

“Benedict did for the Muslims what J Shy
Paul did for the Jews,” the cardinal told
reporters.

The pope, who was initially hailed by
some for speaking frankly, has. held to his
positions —- condemning violence in the
name of religion and demanding freedom
of religion. But he’s refrained from point-
ing a finger at Islam.

After Al-Qaida in Iraq, in a message on
an Islamic militant Web site Wednesday,
called the visit to Turkey part-of a “cru-
sader campaign” against Islam, the Vatican
shot back that the comments showed the
need to fight “violence in the name of
God.”

“This type of message shows once again
the urgency and importance of a common
commitment of all forces against violence,”
Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico
Lombardi said.

Benedict repeated in several speeches

that Europe’s “Christian roots, traditions
and values” must be preserved to “con-
tribute to the culture of a future Europe.”
But in a major gesture to his Turkish hosts
and the Islamic community at large, he
gave support to Turkey’s efforts to meet
the standards for admission to the Euro-
pean Union. -

This already moved him away from the

position he held as a cardinal, when he
questioned whether Turkey had the prop-
er cultural bonds with Europe.
“He came here with humility, and for
the (Roman Catholic) pontiff that takes
an act of courage,” said the Rev. Alexander
Karloutsos, a Greek Orthodox clergymen
who planned the Istanbul meetings
between Benedict and the spiritual leader
of Orthodox Christians, Ecumenical Patri-
arch Bartholomew I.
After Benedict’s Sept. 12 remarks on

Islam and violence at Regensburg Univer-

sity in Germany incensed Muslims around

-. the world, there were calls for Turkey to

cancel his visit and fears for, Benedict’s
personal safety. That was reflected by the
pope’s security force in Turkey, the largest
ever mounted on a papal trip.

Benedict’s visit to the Blue Mosque was
only the second in history by a pontiff after

Pope John Paul II’s 2001 trip to a mosque’

in Damascus, Syria.

The pope bowed his head and closed his
eyes for nearly a minute. As he-left the
17th century mosque, the pope turned to

Cagrici and thanked him “for this moment

of prayer.”

“This visit will help us find together the .

way of peace for the good of all humanity,”
the pope said.

Lombardi said the mosque visit was evi-
dence that the Regensburg speech was a
“taking-off point” for Benedict’s attempt at

a genuine dialogue between Catholicism

and Islam. Despite the tension and con-
troversy, he contended. that Repouseue
“bore positive fruit.”

THE TRIBUNE



The Attorney
General and ©
political life

EDITOR, The Tribune ©

HAD I still been a member of
The Bahamas Bar Association, I
would have been there for 30
years. This longevity in the legal
profession has exposed me to the
modus operandi of several of our
learned Attorney Generals during
this period.

The 1984 Commission of

Inquiry recommended, inter alia,

that several politically connected
persons should be prosecuted for
various alleged offences. ‘The Hon
Paul L Adderley, a great legal
scholar and orator par excellence,
was the then Attorney General.

* Jt would have fallen within his
portfolio to make a decision as
to prosecution of at least one ‘old’
PLP cabinet minister and several
high ranking civil servants who,
allegedly, were partisans of the
‘old’ PLP generally and the late

great Sir Lynden Oscar Pindling —

in particular. Mr. Adderley was
then a member of the ‘old’ PLP
and the MP for St Michael’s. -
In a public forum, Mr. Adderley
lamented that: ‘If I were to do
my job as Attorney General, I

_ would never get another nomi-

nation from the Progressive Lib-
or words to that
effect. I do not know whether or
not he ‘did his job’ or not, but
there were some persons who
were not charged and every one
of those who were charged were
acquitted or the prosecution
offered no real evidence.

I am certain that the learned

gentleman had absolutely noth- ~
ing to do with the success or oth- ©

erwise of those prosecutions but
his gratuitous comments were not

_ designed to instil confidence, in

my view, in the general public. In
any event, Mr. Adderley served
out his term for St Michael’s but
he never ran again, successfully.
Our current Attorney General
was a Defendant, et al, in Civil

Action # 277 of 2001 wherein a _
‘Consent Order’ involving mil-

lions of dollars was signed off on
by Mr Justice John Lyons on the
1st day of December, AD, 2003.
Can this, legitimately, be the pos-
sible ‘source’ of the apparent ven-

om in the ongoing saga between’

herself and the learned judge?

We inherited our constitution-
al system from the UK, almost
hook: line and sinker. Our Attor-
ney General is either an elected
member of the House of Assem-
bly or an appointed Senator
belonging to the governing party
of the day. As such, the AG usu-
ally is expected to toe the party
line; attend parliamentary caucus
and to act as the lead legal advis-
er to that government.

Where this scenario obtains, it
is clear that the ‘temptation’ is
there for an AG to see things,

politically, from his/her party’s.

view point. It has been said that:

“Justice is blind”, but. even the

real blind man knows better than
that. As a lawyer by training, I
have long suspected that the |
blindfolded lady, who represents
the impartiality of “justice”, peeks
out from behind her blindfold at

times. Indeed, here in The
Bahamas, I submit that, legally,
many kisses still go by favour.

In any event, I do agree with
the former learned Attorney
General that the pubic and debil-
itating ‘spat’ between the major
protagonists herein must come to
an immediate halt if more ero-
sion and damage are not.to be
done to the public confidence,

both locally and internationally,
in our judiciary and organs of |

government.

The constitution must and
should be amended so that at
some future point, the Attorney
General, along: with the almost
now defunct office of the Solicitor
General, should be an ‘impartial’
one and the holders thereof,
should not sit in either house of
the legislature or be an active card
carrying member of a political
entity.

A Leal Affairs Minister, com-
pletely separated from the AG’s

Office, would sit in the house or
in the senate, purely as a political
animal and not in sofe sort of
quasi-judicial role. Unfortunately,
however, Christie does not
appear to have the political will
power to usher in constitutional
changes and, in any event, it is
much too late for him to even
think about them at this stage.

Political stances taken by vari-
ous Attorneys General over the
years have often, in my view, con-
flicted with national policies
and/or sentiments. Check out the
Samuel Ninety Knowles saga and -
the political fall out which, as true.
as night follows day, will ‘haunt’
the ‘new’ PLP come the general
elections of 2007.

Do you recall the situation with

_a young man of Greek heritage,

some years ago? A nolli prosequi
was entered by the then AG,
much to the apparent disquiet of
the general public. There are any
number of other instances where
a stance by an AG ended up caus-
ing egg, or worse, to be flung in
his/her party’s collective face.

It’s a good thing that Yahweh is
not a lawyer, as far as we know.
To God then, in all of these judi-
cial and extrajudicial matters, be
the glory.

| Take NHI to referendum

‘EDITOR, The Tribune

DR Bernard J Nottage seems to be influenced by the PLP
Cabinet and some ill-informed PLP advisers who are telling him



what he wants to hear. The Prime Minister trusts his judgment but
the average Bahamian does not trust him or the Prime Minister.

The opinions from the bootlickers who kow-tow to the lead-
ership of the PLP will no doubt sing the praises of the PLP gov-
ernment even if they are talking nonsense. There‘is a‘small group:
who do not read or.understand anything but because. the. PLP are
advancing the National Health Insurance, it is okay. They, with-

‘out even checking out. the. pros.and cons are. saying “yes” to.
everything Dr Nottage is saying. There is no secret that the PLP
will try to use the NHI to help them win the election.

Ihave one simple suggestion. If the PLP believe so strongly that
the Bahamian people are so much in favour of the NHI why
not put it to a referendum? This is a good yardstick to see if NHI
has popular appeal, not “ram it down our throats.” Iam begging:

the good “know-it-all” doctor to test the waters. Take it to a ref-
erendum if he feels so strongly, no long talk. Something as seri-
ous as this should be determined by the people, not just a choice
-few. Let the Bahamian people see how much guts you have.
Bahamians who strongly disagree should rally together and take

to the streets. “Talk is cheap”.

Widow files $1m claim

against Isle of Capr i Mikey hechocect cent

i By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter

FREEPORT - The widow of
a man who died of severe
injuries, allegedly following a
severe beating at the hands Isle
Capri Casino guards last Feb-

tuary, has filed a $1 million law- °

suit in the Supreme Court

- against the casino’s operators.

Lawyer George Missick of
Callenders and Co is represent-

ing Velma McIntosh in an .

action against Isle of Capri Inc
in the death of her husband,
Simeon McIntosh Sr.
McIntosh, 44, was at Isle of
Capri on February 5, 2005,
when the incident occurred: He

. allegedly sustained severe neck

injuries and died in hospital on
February 28, 2005.

The writ alleges that the
action taken by the security offi-
cers in regard to Mr McIntosh
was “unjustified and excessive”.

Mr Missick confirmed that he
is seeking damages — on behalf
the deceased’s wife under the
Survival of Action Act, and on
behalf of his children under
Fatal Accidents Act 1992 — in
the region of $1 million.

In the writ, it is claimed that
Mr McIntosh, who was
employed at Lightbourne’s
Seafood at the time of his death,
earned a salary, including com-
mission, of $26,900 a year.

A substantial portion of his .

income was spent on the bene-
fit of his children, whose ages
range from 11 to 18 years, it
said

The writ alleges that the offi-
cers, who were employees of
Isle Capri, wrongfully and with-

- out lawful justification prevent-

éd Mr McIntosh from entering
the casino, and assaulted and
battered him by intentionally

INTROIT AND COLLECT:
Let the sea roar and all that fills it, the world and all who dwell in it.
Let the floods clap their hands; let the hills sing for joy together before
the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth.
ALMIGHTY GOD, give us grace to cast away. the works of darkness,
and to put on the whole armour of light, now in the time of this mortal
life, in which your Son Jesus Christ came to us in-great humility: so
that on the last day when he shall come again in his glorious Majesty
to judge the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal;
through him who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one
God, now and for ever.

THE TRIBUNE





Ls REE PEE

THE FOUNTAIN
Starring: Hugh Jackman,
Rachel Weisz

WHEN director Darren

Aronofsky exploded onto the ©

scene with the low-budget/high
concept metaphysical thriller Pi,
it was clear that he was talent
not to be ignored.

Pi was followed by Requiem
for a Dream, a nightmarish tale
of drug addiction, which
expanded on some of the gim-

‘micks from the director's first
movie and added a whole bunch
of new ones.

Now we have The Fountain,
which is undeniably interesting,
but shows that perhaps Aronol-

sky should concentrate more on-

his strengths.

The ambitious storyline takes
place in three different time
zones: ac aquistador (Jack-
man) in the .¢th century search-
ing for the Fountain of Youth
for his queen (Weisz), a doctor
desperately trying to save his



wife (Jackman — again — and

Weisz in these roles) from dying
in the present day, and a futur-
istic astronaut (Jackman again)
travelling in strange organic
bubble towards a distant star.
Aside from Jackman and
Weisz’s multiple roles, all three
stories are connected by the
theme of eternal life and a book
that the present day incarnation
of Weisz is working on.
There’s no doubt the past and
future episodes are the strongest.
Although a few of the conquis-
tador parts come across as a lit-
tle stagebound, the ones that

work are incredible and Aronof-

sky manages to throw in some
breathtakingly surreal moments.

But the. bizarre. future
sequences are the most visually
spectacular by far —:with a

@ THREE parallel
stories told through the
odyssey taken on by
one man (Hugh Jack-
man) in his thousand-
year struggle to save
the woman he loves
(Rachel Weisz) in
“The Fountain.”

Bros
Entertainment/

shaven-headed Jackman
hurtling through space while
tending to a huge breathing tree
(don’t ask).
It’s the modern day moments
that are weakest — and almost

- fatal — they’re just too senti-

mental and self-conscious to
really work. Jackman and Weisz
don’t seem to have enough
spark between them and all-out

drama isn’t the director’s strong

point.

With a bit more self-discipline
on ‘Aronofsky’s part, The Foun-
tain could have been something
really special. But, although he
maybe has bitten off more then
he can chew there’s still infi-
nitely more imagination on
show here than in your usual
mainstream movie fare.

Minister Perry Christie attends the funeral service of Pat Bain
(Photos: Felipé Major/Tribune staff)

Christie pays homage to Pat Bain

courage and an indomitable
spirit with which he lifted his
ailing body to the challenge of
elections one more time; with
shoulders held high and a pur-
poseful stride — handling the
pain and fatigue,” Mr Christie
said.

He said Pat Bain represented
“the bridge between: the past
and the present” in the pro-
gression of industrial relations
in the Bahamas.

“He brought to the bar-
gaining table a new and com-
pelling ethos and a new arse-

nal of weapons to advance the.

cause of the workers of our
land.

“He believed deeply that
the best way forward was to







be found in the power. of rea-

son; persuasion by the appli--

cation of reason,” Mr Christie
said.

The prime minister said it is
his sincere hope that those who
will now rise to fill the vacuum
created by Pat Bain’s death will
honour his memory and per-
petuate his legacy.

“On behalf of the people of:

the Bahamas, and on my per-
sonal behalf and that of my
family, I extend my very sin-
cere condolences to Pat’s
bereaved family and to all the
members of that mass family
of trade union members
whom he served so loyally
and effectively for so long,”
he said.

He said that, while it is clear
that there are general invest-
ments that must be made by the
government and multilateral
lending agencies in infrastruc-
ture both physical and institu-
tional, the fact is that the most
equitable form of development
will take place when the peo-
ple of Haiti and their talents are
properly harnessed and
enhanced by an investment in
the people.

The minister pointed out that

the: Bahamas has more than a
passing interest in Haiti.
“Haiti sits about 90 miles to
the south of us and there is a
history of both legal, and in
recent times, mainly illegal
migration to The Bahamas from
Haiti. We have been working
with successive governments
toward building democracy and
toward stabilising the economy
of Haiti in concert with the
international community.
“Sadly, on many occasions we
have seen our hopes dashed
when the world lost interest in
Haiti’s future. There seemed to
be the view that once the job was
done, the world could pack up
and go home,” the minister said.
This time, Mr Mitchell said

Force and hope that we can help
them improve,” he said.

Major General Spears said he
hopes to “enhance our collective
defence capabilities” and work
together with Bahamian agencies
in times of natural disasters and in
combating global terrorism.

“Our greatest challenge as
neighbours and partners is to
improve the security, so that as
sovereign nations we can con- __
trol our borders,” he said.

During his stay in the
Bahamas, the general also vis-
ited the Atlantic Undersea Test-
ing and Evaluation Centre
(AUTEC) in Andros.

Major General Spears said that
he was impressed with the
research work done at AUTEC,
and especially impressed with the
“environmental stewardship.”

At this point in time, he said,
the alliance between the US and
Bahamian forces is so strong
that there are no areas that
need particular improvement.

He emphasised that the
USSOUTHCOM is dedicated
to becoming the “leading joint-
and inter-agency Orsanisalion
in the region.

“An organisation that uses all
of the resources available to
seek to support security, and
stability and prosperity in the
Americas,” he said.

Mitchell backs Haiti aid

“This means that we cannot
think that the job is ever done.
Haiti needs our help and the

stability and peace of our hemi

sphere and indeed the world is
dependent on how Haiti is
helped. We cannot afford to
fail,” he said.

Most recently Deputy Prime
Minister Cynthia Pratt, who is
also the Minister for National
Security, visited Haiti with the
Commissioner of Police to offer
training for Haitian police offi-
cers at the Bahamas Police Col-
lege in Nassau.

The Bahamas Telecommuni-

Ambassador Eugene Newry
has played a full role in seeking
to advance the cause of busi-
ness development. The Cham-
ber of Commerce has been
asked to work with the private
sector of Haiti to see what trade
and commercial opportunities
there are.

“That is some of what we are
pledged to do with our meagre
resources. We believe that more
can be done by the internation-
al community. We must end the
depletion of Haiti’s human cap-
ital by seeking to find ways for
Haitians to remain at home and
not lose their talents and exper-
tise by moving abroad.

“Our message then is a sim-
ple one. Haiti continues to need
our help. All who can help
should help, each to his own
measure. It is important that
we remember the commitment
that we all have to Haiti and
her people,” Mr Mitchell said.

THE St Thomas More Sparks
celebrated their third Catholic
Diocesan Primary Schools’ bas-
ketball championship title with
a hard fought 56-53 overtime
victory. over the St. Cecilia’s
Strikers.

In what could have been con-
sidered one of the best champi-
onships in some time, the
Sparks pulled off the best-of-

three series in the third and

decisive game yesterday at Loy-
ola Hall.

It was in the extra frye waits
period that the Sparks turned
the heat up another notch as
point guard Yorick Sands. got
on fire, striping a couple passes

and racing down the other end-

of the court to score 12 of his 19
points.

The game was tied at 39-39
at the end of regulation, but it

--was St Thomas More who took

~ the early lead in the extra peri-

od and. they maintained a four-
point advantage as they surged
to victory.

“Thank God, thank God,”

~ were the words that Sparks’

coach Leo Delanéy iittéred;try- *

ing to gain his composure as. the
team celebrated with their fam-

“ily and friends.

The last time the Sparks cel-
ebrated was 2003, but Delaney
said this was probably the
sweetest. :

“St Cecilia’s played a hell of a |

game,” he charged. “They made
us play for. this one.’

The. fourth-place ‘Anishersin:

the regular season, the Sparks
played like true champions as
they kept their composure and
did not fold up when the Strik-
ers struck.

What Sands did not do, Der-

rol Collie made up for it with 12

points to assist in the Sparks’
win. But Sands said ‘he knew

that they had the team to do it..

“The fourth quarter:was our

scoring, quarter,” said: the 10-
year-old fifth grader, who will’.

be. looking back for an encore

next year. “We played well that }

way in most of our games.”

Despite the loss, coach Como '

Ferguson said he iad to tip his
hat to his Strikers.

Sparks put out the =
~ to take championship title —

“Tt was good. They played
great,” he said. “I knew we
would have played a good
game, ‘but not in overtime. I

. think we had our problems

when we got a couple of players
in foul trouble.

“We were down to our last
five people on the court, but the
fouls really killed it us. It mur-

_ dered us. We played well. We _
‘played hard. They just played

a little better than us.’

Nikita Dames came up with a
game-high 20 points, just six in
overtime. But he only convert-
ed two of his eight free throws
as he tried to keep the team
going.

“Everybody was just getting .

fouled out and I had four fouls,”

Dames said. “But in overtime, I

had to let the other guys get
fouled and I tried to stay in the
game,”

Even though they fell short,
Dames, said they still have the

‘consolation of playing in their

first championship series.
“This is our first time play-

ing in arena,” he said. “I just

want to tell my team to just

keeping on training and if they —

do what the coaches tell them,

“they could be‘champions.” “5
' Kwasi Dames, one. of the
; players who will ‘be. back next

year to try and get St Cecillia’s
their first championship title,
finished with 15 points in the
loss.

’ Things started to turn for the
worse for the Strikers when
they lost forward Dwight Butler
to five fouls. But it sort of even
itself, out a couple plays later
when the Sparks’ centre Andre
Stubbs had to sit on the bench.

Throughout the game, ‘nei-
ther team was able to open any

considerable lead; which had .
’ the fans on edge as the coaches

tried to make the necessary |
- adjustments play after play.

In fact, it got out of hand at
one point when the parents

“ coaching on the sidelines had
‘to be restrained from getting
‘too close to the sidelines.

At the end of the game, the
Sparks’ fans rushed on the court
in celebration with the players.
There’s no doubt that the cele-
brations will continue at St
Thomas More on Monday..

THE Bahamas. Olympic

Association has postponed its .

elections for three months after
the financial report submitted
by treasurer Vincent Wallace-

_ Whitfield was rejected by the

membership over technical mat-
ters.

The elections were scheduled
for Thursday night at the Nas-
sau Yacht Club during the
annual general meeting. But
because of perceived discrep-
ancies.in the report by Wallace-
Whitfield, the election was nev-
er held.

Incumbent secretary Larry
‘Doc’ Davis confirmed yester-
day that the AGM had been

» postponed until next year, when

a committee had met to review
the report.

Thé committee appointed will
comprise of Rommel Knowles,
president of the Bahamas Soft-
ball Federation; Larry Wilson,
first vice-president of the
Bahamas Basketball Federation
and Sam Haven, a vice-presi-
dent of the Bahamas Football
Association. f

Incumbent Arlington Butler,
who will be seeking his eighth
consecutive term in office as
president, is also expected to be
part of the committee as an ex-
officio member. Wallace-Whit-
field will also be a part of the
committee.

The AGM was well attend-
ed by executives from all of the
affiliated national associations

_and federations.

The list included. the
Bahamas Association of Ath-
letic Associations; the Bahamas
Baseball Association; the
Bahamas Basketball Federa-
tion; the Amateur Cycling Fed-
eration of the Bahamas; the
Bahamas Football Association;
the Bahamas Sailing Associa-
tion; the Bahamas Softball Fed-
eration; Amateur Boxing Fed-

eration of the Bahamas; the ae Tribune wants to hear

details, Davis said the financial



port is rejected

report was mainly not accept-
ed because it had not been
approved and signed by Butler.

“It was moved and he
approved that he should have
a chance to look it over,” Davis
said. “I think what happened
was that they were not done
early enough and they were not
signed.”

With the financial report
being deferred, Davis said the

“consensus from the body was

that the elections be postponed
until the financial report has
been properly finalised and
signed by Butler.

Wilson, who also declined to
go into any full details of why
they rejected the financial
report, simply said there was
no suggestion that anything
fraudulent was going on.

“There were just some small

‘technicalities why the financial

statement was not accepted,”
Wilson said. “Up front, my ini-
tial feeling is that there will not
be any significant changes.
There were just real small tech-
nicalities.”

As for the elections, it is
being rumoured that that are
plans to have a number of the
federation executives challenge
the outgoing executive board
members for the various posi-
tions.

- However, it is also being
rumoured that Butler is not

expected to be challenged.

Whenever the elections are
held, candidates for office can
be nominated from the floor,
but they must be a current or
past executive of any of the

-affiliated associations. and fed-

erations.

Collingwood ends on
98 as England team
commands first day

m@ CRICKET

ADELAIDE, Australia
Associated Press



PAUL Collingwood’s 98 not

-,out and Kevin Pietersen’s
unbeaten half-century helped
England reach a dominating 266
for three Friday on the first day
of the second Ashes cricket test
against Australia.

Batting in front of 31,458
spectators — the largest test
match crowd at the Adelaide
Oval since 1975 — England sup-
pressed an urge toward self-
destruction to play itself into a
strong position by stumps after
winning the toss and deciding
to bat.

Collingwood shared partner-
ships of 113 with Ian Bell and

an unbroken 108 with Pietersen
through the day’s second and
third sessions to restore the
England innings after the loss
of both openers before lunch.

Collingwood was poised to
achieve the century he was
denied when he was out for 96
in the second innings of the first
test at Brisbane, a match won
by Australia by 277 runs.

Pietersen was on 60, sustain-
ing the form that brought him
92 in the same innings and the
buccaneering spirit which char-
acterized his pivotal contribu-

tion to England’s Ashes victory
at home last year.

From 45 for two when open-
ers Andrew Strauss and Alas-
tair Cook were out, Colling-
wood steered England through
a warm, testing afternoon to the
safety of stumps.

Collingwood resisted the
temptation to bid for his cen-
tury before the close of play.
He was out prematurely in Bris-
bane, charging down the wicket
to pursue his hundred with a
single shot, but he lingered in
the high 90s for the last several
overs Friday and didn’t let anx-
iety prevail.

Collingwood and Bell had
batted through the entire sec-
ond session, bringing up their
half-centuries almost simulta-
neously in the final over

before tea. Bell batted 175.

minutes to reach the mark,
Collingwood 147 and both
interspersed their innings with
four fours.

Bell was out early in the final
session, after increasing his
score to 60 with successive fours
off Brett Lee. He was attempt-
ing another hooked boundary
when the ball flew from the top
edge and Lee, following
through, took the catch a meter
from the batsman.

Bell said Friday’s more stoic

performance from England was .

the result of collective soul-
searching after the first-test loss.

“There was a bit of honesty
that we weren’t good enough
in Brisbane,” he said. “We all
said today was an important
day. Whether it was batting or
bowling we had to go out and

do well.”

Collingwood and Pietersen,
united by Bell’s dismissal,
added 122 runs in the post-tea
session.

Pietersen dashed to his 50 in
82 minutes, from 69 balls, with
successive pulled boundaries off
Shane Warne. His half century
included four fours and a six,
also hit off Warne, which was
driven inside-out over the long-
off boundary: one of the longest
boundaries in world cricket.

Warne, who entered the
attack after only 77 minutes ‘and
in the day’s 18th over, finished
with no wicket for 85 runs from
27 overs.

The second new ball was tak-
en shortly before the day’s end,
when England was 254-3, as
Collingwood and Pietersen
resisted Lee and Clark in a dra-
matic prelude to stumps.
Collingwood’s century beck-
oned maddeningly as he
remained on 98 through the last
two overs.

Clark finished the day as
Australia’s best bowler with two
from 25 from 15 overs, sharing
the second new ball with Lee
after being bowled sparingly in
the late afternoon. Lee took
Bell’s wicket at a stiff cost of 77
runs from 20 overs.

“The results showed it was
tough work,” Clark said. “The
wicket’s fairly flat. The boys
stuck at it pretty well all day
but maybe a couple more wick-
ets would have been nice.”

Clark said Collingwood was a
challenging player to bowl to.

“He’s a good player, he
knows his game, he sticks to
what he’s good at it and can
occupy the crease for long peri-
ods of time,” Clark said.

Argentina and
Russia split —







TENNIS...

_. MOSCOW
-- AssociatedPress...





DAVID Nalbandian beat a
struggling Marat Safin 6-4, 6-4,
6-4 Friday to give Argentina a
1-1 tie with Russia at the Davis

. Cup final.

Nalbandian withstood 21 aces
from the powerful but erratic
Safin to win on indoor carpet
at Moscow’s Olympic Stadium.
Boisterous Argentine fans
included soccer great Diego
Maradona. .

Nikolay Davydenko gave
Russia an early lead, defeating
Juan Ignacio Chela 6-1, 6-2, 5-7,
6-4. The third-ranked Davy-
denko, who had lost five previ-
ous matches against Chela,
overcame shaky starts in his ear-
ly service games and a third-set
stumble.

“The final, at home — how
could I not be nervous?” Davy-
denko said. “I lost the third set
because I made so many mis-
takes. In the fourth set, I made
fewer and played well.”

Dmitry Tursunov . and
Mikhail Youzhny continue Rus-
sia’s attempt for a first title since
2002 against Nalbandian and
Agustin Calleri in Saturday’s
doubles. The decisive reverse
singles are scheduled for Sun-
day.

“I’m fresh for tomorrow,”
Nalbandian said. “When I
thought about the match, I

thought it would be tougher, so
three sets ... it’s great. The

- weekend’s not over yet.”



albandian..broke Safin.
when the Russian double-fault-
ed after four aces and a flurry
of deuces in the first game,

enough of an advantage to take

the first set.

Safin survived two break:

points and fired an ace to open
the second set, but ceded his
next service game when he
double-faulted at deuce and
then netted a backhand. Nal-
bandian broke again at the
next opportunity and,
although Safin broke to close

the gap to 5-3, the Argentine -

took the set.

The two traded service wins
in the third set before Safin
handed his opponent two break
points and Nalbandian took a
4-3 lead when the Russian sent
a shot long.

Russia questioned the crucial
call in one of 29 challenges —
nine of them successful — using
the Hawk-Eye video system,
which is making its Davis Cup
debut, but the review showed
Safin’s shot was clearly out.

Nalbandian survived two
break points in the next game
before making it 5-3, then
served out the match at love,
capping it with another ace.

Safin had seven double faults
to go with his flurry of aces.

Safin blamed the surface,

my team a point.”

meturning to the venue where

he won the Kremlin Cup in
October, Davydenko, a winner
of five titles this season, over-
powered Chela in the first two
sets.
- In the third set, Davydenko
trailed 4-1 when Chela broke
him for the first time. The Russ-
ian recovered by breaking back
and took the set to 5-5 before
Chela broke him again to win 7-
5.

After time out for a thigh
massage in the fifth set, Chela
came within 4-3. But Davy-
denko ended his next service
game with his seventh ace.

Chela then held serve, surviving .

a break point.

Leading 5-4, Davydenko
earned two match points with

out with another service win-
ner.

Russia, unbeaten at home in
11 years, is making its fourth

lead and West had no entry card to
cash his spades, South made three
notrump.

At the second table, the contract
went down one after. East played the
queen of spades on the opening trick
rather than the ace. Declarer could
not be blamed for taking the queen
with the king and trying the diamond
finesse. When he. did so, East won
with the king and played the ace and
another spade to defeat the contract.

East’s play of the queen of spades
at trick one was clearly correct. He
was looking at 11 points in his own
hand and 12 in dummy. Since South
was known to have at least 16 points
for his opening notrump bid, ac-
counting for 39 of the 40 points in
the deck, East was in a position to
know that West had at most on
point. : ‘

Consequently, West could not
have a side entry to cash his spades.
East therefore played the queen in
order to force out the king and in that
way create an entry to his partner’s
hand.

It is true that South could have -

thwarted East’s play by ducking the
queen, but he was naturally: afraid
that the whole spade suit would be
run against him if, as was certainly
possible, West held five or six spades
headed by the A-J.

Macieja, Spanish team
championship 2006. The Czech
Republic's autistic grandmaster
Navara continues to impress
with his creative ideas. It sounds
odd that this game against
Poland's number five should be
in a team event in Western
Europe, but the Spanish League
is professional, covered in the
sports media, and sponsored
with ready funds for overseas
stars. Britain's number one
Michael Adams is another
league regular. The diagram
with Black to move looks slightly
better for White, and most
Blacks would recapture od5

opted for exd5 which looks
awful, opening up the e file for

‘

There’s a bigger picture at play this -
week, Aries, but you’re just having -
trouble seeing it. Take off the rose- _

colored glasses ‘and it may just come
into focus.

TAURUS — Apr 21/May 21
You have a goal, Taurus, so what’s
the hold up in getting started on
achieving it? Pisces lends’ a helping
hand on Wednesday, and the end of
the week has some banner days.

-GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21

There’s more to a relationship you
have than meets the eye. Others

don’t know just how much you care ,-'

for this person. It could be time to let -

them in on your little secret.

CANCER — Jun 22/Jul 22

If you need help with something. -

Cancer, you just have to ask for it. You *., Bede

have many willing helpers just waiting -

is one of them. :

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23

You may want to put the brakes on a
financial venture you were consider-
ing, Leo. Let’s just say the stars are
showing that something may not be
on the “up and up” with this deal.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22

then you’re going to love the week °‘.’

you’re about to have. There will be
‘no time for boredom because your’
schedule will be jam-packed.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23

' Give a lot of thought to your actions,

Libra, because this week you cannot
get along by winging it. Expect a rep-

rimand at work. But the entire situa- |

tion settles down by day’s end.

SCORPIO — Oct 24/Nov 22
Does the sound of a few days of rest
and relaxation sound good to you,
Scorpio? It probably does, consider-
ing you’ve been working yourself to
the bone for quite a while now.

SAGITTARIUS — Nov 23/Dec 21
It’s time to make moments count with
a family member with whom you’ve

had a recent falling out, Sagittarius.

Be honest and accept responsibility
for anything you’ve done. ;

CAPRICORN — Dec 22/Jan 20 -

If you’re looking for a ray of sunshine,
you’ ll find it with family members who
are close by, Capricom. They’re just
looking to spread their good fortune
and spirits to you.

AQUARIUS -— Jan 21/Feb 18

Patience is a virtue not many people
possess, Aquarius. Youll need it in
droves when you support a loved
one who is experiencing a rough
patch. All things pass, however.

PISCES — Feb 19/Mar20

Do not take on any more work, Pisces,
unless you want to get. bumt out. You
have enough on your plate to last for
days, so focus on that.
